April 1, 2011 15:06

The 16-year-old Victoria Teslyuk, daughter of Lukoil top manager disappeared in Moscow region on Saturday, March 26. There is a version of a kidnapping, but there are still no statements from criminals.

On Tuesday it became known that Victoria Teslyuk, daughter of Robert Tesliuc, executive with LUKoil Overseas Kazakhstan had dissapeared. Victoria left home in the village of Mytischi district on Saturday at 7.15 A.M. The home village of Victoria is situated on the Dmitrov highway, 4 km away from Ring Road near Dolgoprudyi town. The girl was travelling to Moscow by public transport from Podstancia station. She was wearing a long black coat with a cowl trimmed with red fur and black shoes with buckles.

Victoria was going to Moscow city to study with her mathematics tutor, but she hasn't reached the destination. Her tutor became worried and tried to connect her by the phone. "When the tutor tried to call her, she did not pick up. When he called again later, her phone was switched off," said Irina Gumyonnaya spokeswoman of Investigative Committee told Interfax on Tuesday.

Later that day Victoria's elder sister asked the police for help. Meanwhile, her father denied the disappearance of Victoria. According to the Moscow Times, "the Investigative Committee said a murder case has been opened, prompting media speculation that this was done because of the prominence of the missing girl's family, not because she was feared dead".

"Committee spokespeople did not answer repeated calls for comment Wednesday, but spokeswoman Irina Gumyonnaya told Russian News Service radio on Tuesday that investigators did not consider the disappearance to be a kidnapping for ransom. Oil executives, however, are no strangers to kidnapping cases", reports the Moscow Times. According to Irina Gumyonnaya, Victoria's relatives are being interrogated and its obvious that she has no reasons to run away.

Lukoil company has published a statement on its site asking everyone who knows something to share all the information on this case.

The photos of missing girl were also posted by Liza Alert volunteer group. Yeketarina Golovei, Liza Alert spokeswoman, said 15 to 20 volunteers have distributed flyers in neighboring villages in the Mytishchinsky district. Today volunteers are searching the area where Viktoria Teslyuk was last seen in the hope that she is found.

In august, 2010, snatchers band members were convicted for kidnapping 12-year-old son of Mikhail Stavsky, Rosneft vice president. The criminals were going to get a ransom for the boy and spend the money on financing the North Caucasian thugs.

In september, 2002, Sergey Kukura, Lukoil vice-president was kidnapped. "Kukura, 48, was on his way to work on Sept. 12 when his Mercedes was stopped at a railroad crossing by masked men carrying Kalashnikov rifles. The gunmen, who had been driving a car with the type of license plate normally assigned to Russia's Interior Ministry, allegedly handcuffed Kukura's driver and bodyguard and gave them "sleep-inducing injections" causing both to lose consciousness. Kukura was then taken out of the car and driven away", according to the Russia Journal. The kidnappers demanded 3 million dollars and 3 million euros in cash for businessman release. Two weeks later Kukura came back home. There is no information if a ransom had been payed.
